With Sympathy...

Monday, July 19, 2010

Hello!  I hope you all had a nice weekend.  Ours was full of parties, three of them!  I'm happy to get back in my daily routine today, though.  For today's card I used this week's CPS Sketch.  I really love their simple layouts.  The patterned paper I used is Origins by Basic Grey.  Those flowers are one of the busier patterns in the pack that I was having a hard time using.  I think dividing it into two pieces and adding the neutral brown on top really tones it down.  When I initially wrapped the ribbon around the card it disappeared into the floral paper so I added a layer of brown under the ribbon.
The butterflies were punched from some scraps from the Origins pack and then I added a pewter pearl to the centers.

I hope you all are having a great start to your week!
